Well, I hate to admit this, but no 300 yard drive, despite witnesses, unless my GG is not accurate.  This happens all the time at my league, guys tell me I hit it 280 then GG tells me only 250. Here is my GG from Whispering Woods #17, it registered 277. I'm not complaining, it was still a nice poke that I was happy with.

And YES, it was worth it.  I feel we should look at doing this again, maybe in the spring?

Happy to have you again. I’d again recommend playing before coming. If you want to play afterwards too, okay. But sometimes that doesn’t go well as you’re tired AND thinking about a lot that’s nowhere near ingrained yet.

Ah. Were you going by hole yardage? Doglegs… On the other hand it WAS wet.

Agree, day before and REST after lesson.  I was definitely done after the 5 hour group lesson.

Yes, looked at yardage and forgot to consider the dog-leg.  Still, on my league I will hit one on a straight hole znxvghd guys try to tell me I am 30 yards further than I am.

edit. Changed “fog-leg” to “dog-leg”

Dude, what are you doing? 
Don't let facts ruin a good drive. I will take the stand and swear it was 305! After all, "Anyone can hit a 300 yard drive."

    • Be patient and do it slowly. Your left foot issue may try and limit you from pushing the left hip back, but keep at it. I do a lot of half swing punch shots to get to that position and my left arm still bends a bit at impact.
    • Well… you get what you pay for. Admittedly, the last 5% or even less of the performance isn't only 5% more cost, but… it's still generally true.
    • I used to over hinge my wrists at the top a lot and it took me a long time to reduce the hinge, I dunno, like 6 months and I did it as mentioned above, slow swings and video. Literally try and hit a ball 10 yards with a 9 iron. And I still over hinge but because of the practice before, can fix it in a couple or even one swing. Also my MO was to hit 40 balls every other day rather than 120 balls in one or two days. I think your body needs time to take in a new movement, sleep on it. One motivation I used to see results "instantly" was at the slow swing speed, I saw less hinge and that was the thing that encouraged me to keep going - like in the photo @iacasposted. So it'll be like 10 swings 7 over hinged, 3 less hinge. Then the next session 10 swings, 6 over hinged 4 less hinge. The feel I used to stop hinging so much, and this is my feel, it might or might not work for you is the total opposite of retaining lag or angles, I felt like I was throwing out the angles earlier, casting almost (although not over the top). Hope this helps!
    • I guess the idea is to see if you can get a 500 to 1000 dollar radar based simulator which works well with the RCT golf balls.  This would be a cheap alternative for home practice and a home simulator setup
